My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not slick; I'm not earthy. There's a place in the middle where I sit. So many things already make my life rich and fun. I have a fulfilling job, good friends, an intellectual life that pushes me. An empathetic, playful, curious man beside me is missing though. My needs are simple but important. You take care of yourself and are okay with others taking care of you; you read; good food matters; you are open, honest, and care about stuff. You either love to cook or you love that I will cook for you; you like to be outside. You know a good thing when you see it.

I'm fortunate. I'm close to my family, and we're all still here, healthy and hopeful and interested in each other--with some dysfunction thrown in for good measure. I like nice things, like everyone else, but I'm a teacher. No materialist here. I'll drive my car till it's ready to be put out to pasture. I'd' much sooner spend my money on food or travel, not stuff. Dogs and dancing…well, there are a lot of things I love. There are many things I want to try.

Exploring, creativity, and traveling are essential pieces of any relationship I will have. That doesn't mean I only connect with people whose professions are in the arts. I am an equal opportunist. Many things fascinate me. How else am I going to see the world? I can't live any other life than the one I've made for myself, and, though I have some ambitions, such as publishing my YA novel, teaching is the career for me (middle school English and history). I'm very okay with that, too. I love being in nature--especially hiking.

If you are bothering to read this, you probably already know what you like. Curious men are often sexy men. So are people with a generous spirit. I'm a giving and passionate person who believes myself to be a work in progress. I love the vulnerability that comes with a close relationship. There's always a risk, but sometimes that risk pays off in tremendous dividends.

Old movies --especially from the 70's, 30's and 40's-- I'm always interested in seeing ones I missed because I happened to born in the wrong decade.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I usually think photographs of me make me look a lot less attractive; hence I don't like posting them!
